When I am trying to open *.zip or *.rar attachements in Microsoft Outlook 2003, I receive "Application not found" error message.

I have WinRAR installed on computer. I have already checked file assosition list from Folder Options\FileTypes. Behind *.zip and *.rar WinRAR stays. If I try to open *.rar file for example from desktop it opens normally.

Thank you for you help beforehand.

Best Regards,

    I will try to reinstall WinRAR. What about "save as" I will tell that it works. But I need to open the attached file by double clicking on it.
